U.S. Military's Smart Gun is Awesome as Shit

Now I'm not a violent man at all. I don't care for real-life violence and I think war is mostly unnecessary. If you wanted to put a label on it, I'm probably a pacifist by nature.

But I am also a boy and boys like awesome shit that blows up! I grew up playing G.I. Joe and thinking that being a Navy SEAL might be the coolest job in the world (next to vampire hunter, of course), so you can hopefully forgive (and maybe sympathize with) my excitement over this video.

The new smart gun basically fires rounds with microchips in them that will allow the user to detonate and fragment the round based on the distance they program into the gun. One of the examples I heard was shooting through a window and blowing the round to take out a gunman hiding behind a wall.

Sick. I think Sgt. Slaughter just pissed himself. That's like the stuff they were using in Eraser with Arnie. Pretty soon we'll have Iron Man armor and Terminators defending the country. I feel like I'm living in a sci-fi movie.

So check out the clip for some rad war-mongering fun. I promise to lighten things up with a dick joke or something real soon.
